The mandalitas are making me very happy. It's amazing how meditative it can be to draw circles. I think that is why they are my favorite "symbol."
I really toiled over placing a letter "K" in the middle. I started to put the number 5 instead -- you know, for day 5 of AEDM, but I went with the "K" even though at first it felt self serving and a little narcissistic, but I know my spirit/energy and so I did just went with the "K." If nothing else, to prove to myself that it's important to celebrate the self!!
The watercolors were also meditative -- trying to keep them in the lines was fun, until I decided that staying in the lines isn't as important as the meditative nature of using watercolors. That realization was more fun -- even though it came at the end of the painting process. :-).
My NaPhoPoMo pic for day 5 is called, "Thank Goodness for Leftovers" :-). Yes. I am thankful for the leftovers today because I don't have time for cooking this week with the launch of my first product -- The Mixed Media Inspiration Deck -- so I'm grateful that there are left overs in my fridge!!! Yummy leftovers!!!
I'm also really working to learn how to take better photos. I need a lesson in lighting and angles. Anyone wanna come teach me?
